This is a rental agreement that is issued to you by order of a court. This is a trial period and normally lasts one year, but can be increased to 18 months. If you are a new tenant, it is likely that you will be offered an introductory rental agreement. This is a trial lease, usually for a period of 12 months (up to a maximum of 18 months). Your housing manager will check with you to make sure you are respecting your lease. After this test, you may be offered a secure rental agreement. If you are a safe tenant, you have the right to stay in your home for as long as you want – as long as you comply with the terms set out in your rental agreement. You are often given a degraded lease for antisocial or disruptive behavior. If something goes wrong due to normal wear and tear and it`s not your fault, talk to your landlord.
